Landry's propensity for throwing his 6-foot, 210-pound body at running backs and receivers during training camp seems to have answered questions about the neck injury that sidelined him for most of last season. Question: : Has it been difficult to put the memory of that game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 in the past? Answer: : It's been real easy for me to put that behind me. I've been cleared to play, I've been having fun out here, so that's the past. Q: : Is there anything that will give you pause?

It was like going to a new school for the first time, only Dawan Landry came into Jacksonville with his status already set. He was coming in to start, to be a part of Jacksonville's great defensive rebuild. "I was kind of nervous, not knowing what to expect," Landry said. " ... The whole organization welcomed me with open arms. Have a lot of players willing to learn and coaches that's willing to [listen to players]. " Landry brought leadership and veteran safety experience -- something that was lacking last year -- to the Jaguars' secondary.

On the same day the Ravens officially placed cornerback Chris McAlister on injured reserve, the club ended the season for strong safety Dawan Landry by putting him on IR as well. McAlister, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has not played since the Ravens' 27-13 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 19, when he was benched by coach John Harbaugh and relegated to limited snaps. McAlister underwent surgery Monday in Coral Gables, Fla., to repair his posterior cruciate ligament and cartilage damage on his right knee, according to the Associated Press.

Toward the end of Thursday's morning practice, several young autograph seekers at Ravens training camp tried to get Dawan Landry's attention by calling him "Mr.Landry. " The strong safety is beginning to get accorded a similar level of respect by his teammates. Landry's ferocious tackles have revalidated his nickname, "Whop" -- the sound his pads make when he barrels into a ball carrier -- and earned a couple of teammates a brief stay on the sideline. Last Friday morning, Landry split Willis McGahee's bottom lip, and the running back missed the rest of the session before returning in the afternoon.

Minutes after the Ravens' 29-10 thumping of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Jared Gaither had already steeled himself for his positional meeting with offensive line coach John Matsko yesterday. "I have a lot to improve on," Gaither said. "I've got a lot to get better for next week." The successor to all-but-certain Hall of Famer Jonathan Ogden, Gaither has played well in his first season as the starting left tackle. But his progress nearly unraveled Sunday. Gaither (Maryland) was flagged for two false starts, one holding penalty and going downfield as an ineligible receiver once.

Ravens strong safety Dawan Landry sustained what the team is calling a spinal cord concussion near the end of the first half of yesterday's game against the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium, but initial reports seem to suggest he did not suffer any serious, permanent injury. According to team spokesman Kevin Byrne, Landry, who was carted off the field, had regained full movement by last night but was staying overnight at Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution. "We're thankful for Dawan's situation," coach John Harbaugh said.

HAS THE SEASON STARTED YET? The Ravens played the way they did for most of the preseason - sloppily. They became the first team in nine years to fumble three times in the same quarter, and were fortunate to come out of the first quarter trailing 9-0. Even after they seemingly had taken control of the game, Steve McNair's first interception (and fourth turnover) helped the Bengals go ahead 27-20. Kyle Boller's pass that bounced off Todd Heap's chest and was intercepted sealed the loss for the Ravens.

There was a moment last week when Ravens safety Dawan Landry slammed into running back Cory Ross during a rushing drill, eliciting a cry of "Yeah, Landry!" from someone standing on the sideline. It's unclear who was behind the praise, but Landry can be certain the source was not defensive backs coach Mark Carrier. "I still treat him like a rookie and keep him low," Carrier said with a chuckle. "I don't beat him up, but I give him the least amount of praise. I've told him, 'You're stuck with me, and I'm going to ride you until they tell me not to.' " Though another player might chafe at such disrespect, Landry takes the critique in stride, laughing heartily when told of Carrier's comments.

Dawan Landry was such a pleasant surprise as a rookie with the Ravens last season that he received the biggest bonus the NFL provides through its performance-based pay subsidy, more than doubling his base salary of $275,000. A fifth-round draft choice out of Georgia Tech, Landry beat out Gerome Sapp for a starting safety job and had 89 tackles and five interceptions, the most of any rookie last season, tying Ed Reed's franchise record for a first-year player. The circumstances for Landry this season have been a lot different, and so have the results, at least those that can be measured on the stat sheet.

Rookie strong safety Dawan Landry said yesterday that his sprained right knee is improving, but he wasn't sure whether he would be able to play when the Ravens take on the host New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Landry, the team's fifth-round draft pick, was present during the portion of yesterday's practice that was open to the media, but he did not participate in drills and did not bring his helmet. "I'm just taking it one day at a time," Landry said. "I'm just hoping for the best and hopefully I'll be out there.

Ravens coach Brian Billick offered a mea culpa for mismanaging the clock Sunday. Billick spent part of his weekly news conference yesterday acknowledging that he botched a timeout call in the final minutes of the Ravens' 23-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The sequence in question occurred on Carolina's final possession. With 1:15 left in the fourth quarter and on second-and-four from the Panthers' 43-yard line, running back DeShaun Foster ran up the middle for a 3-yard gain. Billick said he waffled on whether to call a timeout because he thought the officials might ask for a first-down measurement, which would have stopped the clock.

In just his first season in the NFL, Dawan Landry led all rookies in interceptions with five, finished fifth on the team in tackles with 89, and earned a spot on the All-Rookie team. Already, the strong safety from Georgia Tech has been tabbed by teammates Ed Reed and Bart Scott as the next Raven to earn an invitation to the Pro Bowl. What did you want to improve on in the offseason? After last season, [secondary coach Dennis Thurman] wanted each of us guys to get 10 percent better. So we tried to get 10 percent better on everything.
